Where to see springtime wildflowers

If you are looking to view wildflowers this spring, the U.S. Forest Service has a great website, with a listing of wildflowers by region.

The wildflower below is from the Pacific Southwest viewing area, and specifically, the Slate Mountain Botanical Area, in California’s Sequoia National Forest.
